because look, if anything we can do to -- if she goes to france to annoy the french at this point would be a good thing, and french fashion used to cut it, but does anna wintour really thing that today. her nickname is nuclear wintour. that's what they called her. she should be the ambassador to china or russia. that's much better for her. >> she probably thinks you're sarcastic. >> she makes a lot of money for the president. the president obviously did well on the celebrity set. he and michelle are the darlings of vogue magazine. she's been on the cover many times. it's not surprising that anna wintour would be in their orbit. what qualifies her to be a u.s. ambassador. >> if you look at any of these choices? let's be honest. the choice for ambassador for britain for the last 15 years has been, whether it's republican or democrats has been one of the biggest donors. it's not a hugely diplomatic post. it's payback. >> of all the things that president obama's up to that rick was just talking about, this really doesn't stick in my craw. it does illustrate what we've talked about many time
responsibility here because after the overthrow of gaddafhi, the obama administration, britain, france just turned away from the problem, and so now we have this potential anarchic situation where the terrorists can take root. >> greta: so now what? what do we do? >> at this point trying to find ways to strengthen, i use this term loosely, the government of libya is very important because if we sees somalia this time on the southern coast of the mediterranean, it's very clear that europe will be vulnerable and indeed we will be worldwide, so it seems to me this is something that we should be involved in, but our friends in europe really have a lot at stake here, too. >> ambassador, we want to also ask you tonight about former vice-president dick cheney's latest remarks. now, last night he blasted president obama's foreign policy in the middle east. here's what he said in part. >> i think certainly in my conversations with many of those people, they no longer believe us. they no longer trust us. they no longer believe they can count on the united states of america to do what we did 20 years
